  • Tasty beer, helpful and knowledgeable staff, groovy space, a great place to hang out! They have small batch beers exclusive to the brewery, and you can buy a flight to try several. The tour is free (but please tip your guide) and it is absolutely awesome! Our guide was personable, knowledgeable, fun, and answered all of our questions. : )
  • A large, inviting taproom with a great vibe, and great core and seasonal beers on tap. Add to that the front outside deck and rooftop bar and you've got several areas to relax with friends and enjoy some great AVL craft beer.
  • Highland Brewing is a fantastic low-key venue with so many great places to photograph, especially at sunset. They are always helpful with planning. I’m very excited to be hosting a wedding photography workshop there this month.
  • This is one of our local treasures. Great beer, fantastic atmosphere, fun people. This place is a classic for a very good reason.
  • Great place but new remodel is underwealming. Still a good time with music in tasting room, great roof deck bar and a meadow to play in. Huge, touristy place, with lots of parking. Same great beer. Asheville's first craft brewery is still got a lot going for it.
